Moral Injury

Healthcare professionals and emergency responders face extraordinary stressors in the crisis environment daily. Factor in staffing shortages, corporate financial constraints, long work hours, unrealistic rotations and shifts, dying clients and patients, and increasingly complicated situations, the constant technological challenges seem overwhelming at best. Now add in the personal stressors of family, finances, time away from home, the need for continuing education, fragile interpersonal relationships, and crisis becomes an ongoing event with little relief in sight.

During this age of uncertainty – especially during pandemic, all these stressors seem to have been exacerbated and recognizing stress and its manifestations seems irrelevant. Critical incidents, adverse events, medical and operational errors, near misses, disclosure, reporting, and moral injury and second victimization seem to be expected even when unwanted. It’s important to know that these do not exist in isolation – they are on a continuum of crisis.

Is there a balm in Gilead for responders – healthcare and emergency personnel? Talking about stress and manifestations of stress will be inadequate for resilience and fitness. Awareness, stabilization, mitigation, and restoration in new ways will be necessary.
